Dear Dipthi Gajar,
Check out www.greatschools.com and I believe you will see that Pleasanton overall has excellent schools based on their current API test scores. There are some that are slightly better than other but the majority of elementary schools are all rated highly and which school your children will attend will depend on the nearest schools ability to accept your child do to limited class sizes and impacting in some schools and school grade levels. If schools are your primary concern then I would suggest you find a school you like and then make certain they have room for your child and then locate a home in that attendance area.
I hope this helps and should you have additional questions or concerns or wish to discuss housing I would be glad to help

In NYC we co-broke 50/50 between the tenant's agent and the listing agent.The standard fee in NYC is 15% of the first year's rent, the agreement on that fee is between the tenant & their broker not the the tenant & listing agent (unless the agent is representing both parties - which is called 'dual agency' and must be disclosed and agreed to by both parties in writing within the agency disclosure), but some apartments are listed for other amounts than the standard, so the tenant's agent should let the potential lessee know if that is the case - before showing the apartment to them so there is no misunderstanding.... more

Hi Monica, I would consider most of Raleigh and the surrounding communities very family-friendly, except perhaps parts of southeast Raleigh. Take a look at this crime map to get an idea of what's
It would really depend on your preferences to find the neighborhood that works for you. You are
right about Wake Forest...nice rolling countryside and close to Falls Lake. Probably looks and feels like home. But, if you are into the night life and attractions of Raleigh, you might want to be a little closer in towards the city. North Hills, for example is a great area with loads of shopping. Or you might want to be in the "thick of things" and the historical part of the city like Oakwood, Cameron Village or Five Points to name a few.
Feel free to contact me with some specifics about your lifestyle, family (children?), and living accommodations and I'd be glad to help you out! I might even have a rental of my own available
that you might like, depending on the timing of your move. If you'd like to chat about your move
just go to my website below for my contact information.

Bad credit, with a co-signer is still bad credit. A co-signer is only used to cancel any income discrepancies, not fix credit problems. It essentially boils down to the ability of a bank to trust that you know how to handle money. They don't care if somebody else in your family knows how to handle it, they want to know that the benefactor knows and has a history of paying bills on time.
As far as the income piece is concerned, the bank needs to feel confortable whether or not enough money is being brought in to sustain the debt load (along with any other debt load the co-signer has to sustain).
Why? Because the lender is probably not going to hold the loan. They will most likely sell it to Fannie Mae so that they can do another loan. The guidelines are set by Fannie Mae for required credit and since they buy the vast majority of loans, this is who the bank is targeting as the buyer of the loan. If it doesn't conform to those lending standards, the bank can't sell the loan and therefore can't make another loan in the future after selling yours (ie the bank is stuck with it).
I hope this helps. Just keep working on your credit and you'll get there. Time solves everything.
